In An Instant
In February 2007, Bob Woodruff and his wife Lee co-wrote a memoir "In an Instant: A Family's Journey of Love and Healing," chronicling Bob's injuries in Iraq and how their family persevered through a time of intense trauma and uncertainty.
"Gripping . . . The Woodruffs' devotion to each other is palpable. . . [In An Instant is] a remarkably lucid, even engrossing story of . . . Bob Woodruff's recovery, interwoven with tales from his marriage and family life."
-San Jose Mercury News
"Both Woodruffs [shoot] from the hip, writing with candor about their ordeal and describing it with an intimacy that couldn't be captured on camera. . . Their frankness heightens the book's impact."
-The New York Times
"Extraordinary . . . All sorts of themes thread their way through this frank, inspiring book: courage in the face of adversity; the pursuit of career at the expense of family; the bravery of foreign correspondents; the fortitude of female friendship. . . Woodruff's survival story comforts."
-The Seattle Times
"A testimony to the power of the human spirit, to the catharsis of love and to infinite hope."
